‘Dune’ Is Poised To Get A Big Time Film Franchise


A proper adaptation of Frank Herbert’s Dune has been the dream of many a filmmaker over the years, but these projects either fell short of Herbert’s vision or failed to get off the ground. But now there’s hope.

Legendary has managed to acquire film and TV rights for Dune after coming to an agreement with the Herbert estate (this, by itself, was a Herculean task).

Details are scarce, but it seems that Legendary is looking at adapting Dune as a franchise, which should be encouraging to fans because trying to faithfully adapt the novel in a single film is probably impossible.
